Was there ever an Atlantis?

I've always thought this was an interesting story. Was there ever a city of Atlantis? If there was, what happened to it? Did it sink into the ocean like so many of the stories say?

After 20 years of research, there is now a website stating that the city of Atlantis was indeed real. It was divided into ten kingdoms and one of those kingdoms was called Atlantis! In other words, The Americas were once Atlantis!
According to this research, Atlantis was located in what is now called Tampa, Florida. There is also a small island in Tampa Bay that is called Atlantis, which helps support the fact that Atlantis was an island.

Apparantly, Atlantis did "sink", but not in the way you would think. This website states that "there occurred violent earthquakes and floods; and in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea. For which reason the sea in those parts is impassable and impenetrable, because there is a shoal of mud in the way; and this was caused by the subsidence of the island". So, Atlantis didn't just sink into the ocean one day, it was actually hit by a tsunami.
